Delta Bonuses (60K & 70K) Are Back For Limited Time

It’s baaaaaack!!!  Delta’s sign up bonuses have jumped to 60,000 and 70,000 SkyMiles on the Gold and Platinum Amex cards.

If you are looking for some quick Delta SkyMiles, this will get you a nice haul.  These limited time offers expire in a month (November 8th).

Remember that you are only allowed the sign up bonus once per lifetime PER CARD with American Express.  I’ve received bonuses on the Delta Gold Personal and Business cards, as well as the Personal Platinum card.  I like Delta so I may pull the trigger on the Platinum Business card.

You can find these cards under “Chip’s Favorite Credit Card Offers” at the top right side of this website.  Click on “Travel Rewards Credit Cards”.  Or click on the Apply Now widgetty thing at the bottom of this post.  Email me if you have any questions.

The Gold Delta SkyMiles card

  • Earn 50,000 bonus miles if you spend $2,000 on the card in the first 3 months that you have the card.
  • You get 2 miles for every dollar spent on Delta.  1 mile for every dollar spent on anything else. So… if you meet the $2,000 spending requirement and don’t even spend anything at Delta, you will have 52,000 Delta SkyMiles (50,000 bonus miles + 2,000 miles for spending $2,000).
  • Plus… get an extra 10,000 bonus miles after you spend an additional $1,000 with your new card within your first 6 months.  You’ll get the mile per dollar here as well.  After meeting that spending requirement, you will have an additional 11,000 Delta SkyMiles.   That’s a grand total of 63,000 Delta SkyMiles!
  • Get a $50 statement credit on your new American Express Delta SkyMiles card if you make a Delta purchase with your new card during those first 3 months.  If nothing else, buy yourself a $50 Delta gift card with your new credit card to use at a later date.  Your statement will get credited almost instantly – so it’s effectively free!
  • The $95 annual fee is waived the first year
  • Free checked bag on every Delta flight for up to four people on your reservation.
  • Your Delta SkyMiles miles never expire – even if you cancel the card later.

The Platinum Delta SkyMiles card

  • Earn 70,000 bonus miles (and 10,000 Medallion Miles) if you spend $4,000 on the card in the first 3 months that you have the card.
  • You get 2 miles for every dollar spent on Delta.  1 mile for every dollar spent on anything else. So… if you meet the $4,000 spending requirement and don’t even spend anything at Delta, you will have 74,000 Delta SkyMiles (70,000 bonus miles + 4,000 miles for spending $4,000).
  • Get a $100 statement credit on your new American Express Platinum Delta SkyMiles card if you make a Delta purchase with you new card during those first 4 months.  I bought myself a $100 Delta gift card with my new credit card to use at a later date.  I got my statement credit almost instantly – so, again, it’s effectively free!
  • The $195 annual fee is NOT waived the first year.  So, if I subtract the $100 credit for making a Delta purchase, I can rationalize that it’s really only $95 for the card.  I am in effect paying $95 for 70,000 Delta SkyMiles.  That was more than enough to pay for my Christmas flight which would have cost me $786.40.  Well worth it!
  • Free checked bag on every Delta flight.
  • Your Delta SkyMiles miles never expire – even if you cancel the card later.

If you need a few more miles, check out: 11 Ways To Meet A Spending Requirement. My favorite is to over pay my electric bill in advance, reload my Amazon Balance with my credit card, or use my credit card to buy a Visa gift card at the grocery or pharmacy.   It’s pretty easy!
